STRATTANVILLE - The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch football team shut out the Clarion-Limestone Lions by a 35-0 score Friday night.
The Dutchmen scored on four of their first five possessions last night to build a 28-0 halftime lead.
The Dutch scored early in the third period to take a 35-0 lead and put the mercy rule into effect.
â€śThis was a good rebound for us after last weekâ€™s loss,â€ť said St. Marys coach Joe Schlimm. â€śWe were up against an undermanned team and I feel for them.â€ť
The Elk County Catholic Crusader football team recorded a 28-6 homecoming victory over the Ridgway Elkers on Friday evening at Dutch Country Stadium in St. Marys.
The rain held off until just after the midpoint of the third quarter, allowing for dry weather for the Crusaders' homecoming festivities at halftime. Despite the change in the weather, both teams did a good job holding onto the ball and the rain seemed to have little impact on the game.
ECC coach Travis Skrzypek remarked that he was pleased with his squad's play throughout the game.
